Tucker's Info...

Tucker's Story...
Tucker is the red one and will require more attention. We think he was abused/neglected before we got him. He was so very thin you could see his ribs and spine. The vet says he has now gained to a good weight. I have not had the time to spend with him that I know he needs. His tail is also crooked. Vet could tell us if he was born like that or if it was purposely done. He barks at everyone he doesn’t know but eventually warms up to everyone (especially if they will play ball with him). Vet said it’s just his defense mechanism. He loves to play ball. Will play for hours. He also loves to have his belly rubbed. If you are going to pick him up to take him outside and he doesn’t want to go he will just roll over and be like “pet my belly”. It cracks me up. He too likes to sleep with you but he likes to sleep with his head on your pillow. If he is behind you he will put one paw on your back so he knows that you are there. It is so sweet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tucker, a Stafford Springs Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund for sale in Stafford Springs, or seeking a Dachshund dog from a breeder in Stafford Springs.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Stafford Springs already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Stafford Springs breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dachshund breeders who help with Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Stafford Springs paves the way for another one to be saved.
